Tutorial: Image sensors for low power applications

Image sensors are the front end of many computer-vision based input modalities. These human-machine input modalities usually need to run on a mobile platform which has stringent power requirement. This tutorial will cover both low power image sensor design from a designer’s perspective and some useful practices to save sensor power from a user’s perspective especially in ML applications. We will start by laying out basics including the operation principle of pixels, readout chain and other common blocks in an image sensor. Then, the trade-off between power consumption and general sensor performance will be discussed. Following the discussion, the effectiveness of power reduction techniques like subsampling, low frame rate, etc. and the impact on following ML processing stages will be evaluated with examples. Finally, an ultra-low power global-shutter digital pixel sensor developed at Facebook Reality Labs Research will be introduced.

    Definitely consider that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the
    internet the simplest factor to have in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get irked at the
    same time as other folks consider concerns that they plainly don’t recognise about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as defined out
    the whole thing with no need side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
